Snoot Sandwich- A St. Louis Favorite...

  • s

With all the talk of the fried brains, my interest was piqued into finding out where I can go to get a snoot sandwich in St. Louis. I guess it's a sandwich, right? I've lived here all my life and have never had one. Maybe I'll make a day of it. Fried brains for lunch and snoot for dinner. Any suggestions?

  1. A great snoot sandwich can be found in the little "food court" area of the indoor part of Soulard Market. It's a rather large sandwich on white bread with pickles and onion (It's nothing to sneeze at!). Consistency is similar to eating a dense pork rind sandwich. Bon Appetit!

      Snoot sandwich = white bread, onions, pickles

      that is all?

        And don't forget my personal favorite, a fried tripe sandwich. White bread, onions, pickles and lots of yellow mustard.

          Well of course there is a whole pig's snout on the sandwich too! Nostrils and all! Thus the name - Snoot Sandwich

          Try Mama's Coal Pot, the ribs carryout place at the Market in the Loop on Delmar.

            Red's Rib Shack in Maryville, IL has great snoots, ribs, pulled pork, chicken. And I've never found a bristle (pig whisker) in one of their snoots, something that is all to common at other joints around town I've been to.
